Mister Rogers arrives with a golf ball and club and mentions that his friend, professional golfer Carol Mann, will be stopping by later. Using a small plastic cup for the hole, he practices putting before going outside where he is joined by Francois Clemmons. Talking about the practice it takes to become a skilled golfer, Mister Rogers and Mr. Clemmons sing You've Got To Do It.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat is writing a letter to Collette to thank her for the dresses. Having outgrown some of her own clothes, Henrietta asks Francois Clemmons to deliver some clothing to the Platapus family for baby Ana.

Near the Platypus mound, X the Owl is swigning golf clubs while he impatiently waits for Henrietta to finish the letter. Mr. Clemmons encourages X to be patient and reminds him to be careful swinging the clubs.

At the Platypus mound, Elsie Jean is happy to accept the dresses shared by Henrietta.When Corney passes by carrying a large stack of boxes, they are knocked from his hands by X the Owl who was carelessly swinging his golf clubs. With X feeling angry with himself, Mr. Clemmons sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.
